Kanye West stated, "I was just under the weight of my sin and I was being convicted that I was running from God, and I knew I needed to make things right, so I came to Christ. I came out of darkness into the light.’” He can be called Rev. Kanye West but a musical minister today after another preacher/pastor took him through the Gospel, making sure he understood clearly about the atonement of Jesus Christ, that God is holy, that we are sinners, that Jesus came to die in the place of sinners, that by repenting and believing in Him, we can have eternal life.

As you can see to be saved doesn't mean you automatically have salvation awareness. It is something you must obtain. But a belief in the doctrine of Jesus comes from a teachable moment. Kanye West was first called to Jesus and secondly called to a musical ministry but it is a process, a marathon and not a sprint. A calling to a ministry doesn't come with extra intelligence but you must apply what you know and have a zeal to seek out more with the intelligence you already have.

When and how the spirit moved him doesn't solidify his calling but to accept the responsibility does. There is a responsibility that comes with being called to minister through music because there is a duty to guide someone properly in the name of Jesus even through song. What his past life consisted of doesn't matter anymore but how he applies it to this new lifestyle does. Can he still rap? Of course he can if it is all to the glory of God.
